Sam Lutfi filed a lawsuit against Britney Spears and her parents for libel and defamation, the Associated Press reports. Sam Lutfi is Britney’s former manager.
Lutfi’s attorney, Bryan J. Freedman said in a statement Tuesday that there is “overwhelming evidence from independent witnesses” proving his client’s case and that “at the time of the trial in this action, the jury will have an opportunity to weigh the credibility of the witnesses.”
Jamie Spears, Britney’s Dad and permanent conservator, was granted a restraining order against Sam Lutfi and Britney’s ex Adnan Ghalib, on Friday.
According to court papers Jamie felt Lutfi and Ghalib were trying to gain control of Britney’s affairs.
According to US Magazine, Britney Spears father,Jamie Spears, was earning about $10,000-a-month for his court-ordered supervision of the singer, but a Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner gave him a $6,000-a-month raise on Monday.
Jamie will also receive an additional $1,200-a-month expense account to keep an office, where he will be working on Britney’s conservatorship and getting her personal life back on track.
Jamie was first put in temporary control of his daughter’s affairs on Feb. 1 following her two forced hospitalizations in January.
As a parent – I can’t imagine being paid to take care of my own children. What do you think – should Jamie Spears be paid to control his daughter’s life?? I know she’s an adult but to be paid to keep your daughter on the straight and narrow seems a bit odd.
